I loved how the girl went after the butterfly, got lost, found silence. It was quite poetic at times and that made the book even more beautiful. The ending was expected, since we only had one page left and it would be strange to leave the girl alone in a big meadow, still I think the book could have been a bit longer, lingering on the sense of being lost, the sense of despair. Now it was only a short bit and then mom was there.
One thing I would like more if the book was told from the distant/story teller point of view, and not that of the girl. I think that would have conveyed a better message and might have had more impact.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, yes I would.
